Well, FIP is likely to run through certain genetically similar cats, because it's a genetic fault that triggers it in cats, it's thought. So it's entirely possible that your area has a very NON-diverse breeding cat population, and so most of the rescues you get are from the same bloodlines.

There's a very valid theory out there that early neutering of males makes them more prone to urinary blockages, because the urethra growth is kicked into over drive by the hormones of becoming an adult. When you neuter BEFORE the cat reaches adulthood, the urethra never reaches it's adult

No, she's dead wrong. She's a HORSE person, and that explains her instant dread of possums and her thinking of them as vectors of disease, BUT, that's because possums are THE MAIN CAUSE of EPM, a very insidious disease in horses that affects their spinal cord, eventually leading to
